The 1970s Collection

Mervyn Kowalsky and Nancy Sonn’s wedding on Oct. 2, 1954 at Watermargin

My parents met at Cornell and were married on Oct. 2, 1953 in Watermargin. My father, Mervyn Kowalsky ’54, BS ILR ’53, graduated from ILR, and my mother, Nancy Sonn ’56, was attending what is now Human Ecology. She got her degree much later (1980) from CALS.

The first photo is the Nixon family at my daughter Spencer’s graduation this past May. My son, Blair, Hotel ’15, is in the foreground. One of the greatest accomplishments of my life was being able to give both of my children a Cornell education. The second photo was taken after the Hotel School graduation ceremony.
